Although legendary designer Alexander McQueen has passed away, his last few creations were just released to the public.
Take for example, the camouflage “Skull Rose” boots:

Queen Latifah wore this style to the premiere of “Just Wright” in New York. She paired the boots with a comfortable-looking shirt-dress, a thick brown belt and gold earrings:

From afar, the print on these boots looks “alienistic”. But if you look closer, it is all just skulls and roses. This McQueen creation may look like any other pair of clip toe booties, but don’t make the mistake of underestimating it as just that.
The print alone already makes the boots look busy. Combine that with the 7-inch shaft and high and wide foldover collar, what you get is a pair of shoes that are risky and tricky to wear. In other words, donning these boots will require some skill and audacity.
Given the shaft height and its busy print, we recommend simple and very short outfits!
